The issue of sub-optimal operation of Heating and Ventilation systems (HVACs) in Srinagar hospitals, especially in the harsh winter season, has been reported in multiple news outlets over multiple points of time in the past decade. Despite this, there has been no formal acknowledgment of this issue by any of the hospital authorities.
